The Samsung Galaxy S9 carved the way for devices to start combining all the very latest and best features wanted in a mobile device, including wireless charging, better biometrics and the camera was a huge leap forward from the previous version, despite visually looking very similar.
Since the device was released in 2018, we’ve had thousands of S9’s traded in and recycled through our platform, many of the devices are then refurbished to a high standard, replacing any degraded batteries or any broken components, or maybe just given a thorough clean inside and out, to then be sold back as refurbished and listed through the refurbished comparison on Compare and Recycle.
When you choose to buy refurbished, you are saving a considerable amount on the price of a brand new device, and you are able to take advantage of 0% finance deals from the likes of Klarna and Paypal if you do choose to split the monthly payments out over a short period. You can also buy a sim-only contract that usually have the best contract terms in place.
Not only are you saving money, but you are doing your bit for the environment by reducing the demand for new devices, the lions’ share of emissions from the entire lifecycle of a mobile phone come during the mining and production of the device, so buying a refurbished device negates much of that demand.
All of the retailers featured on Compare and Recycle offer a certified refurbishment service on the recycled devices they receive, bringing them up to a top quality standard, there may be some visual imperfections on the good condition models, but this is just an opportunity to get the device you want for less. All devices come with a warranty period comparable to buying new and there are many more protections available than buying from a person to person marketplace or auction site.
